Murals come to life in this video, made by film-maker Binoy K. Behl, covering the rich panorama of murals in Rajasthan including Dungarpur, Udaipur, Kota, Bundi, Amber, Nagaur and Shekhawati. It shows many sites which have never been clearly photographed before.
“In the rich and varied tapestry of the paintings of Rajasthan, we see the constant interaction and confluence of two cultures. On the one hand, there is the ancient tradition of mural paintings coming from Ellora and other great sites. The other constant influence in the murals of Rajasthan of the entire medieval period is that of the Moghul court. These are reflected in the murals of Rajasthan” says Mr. Behl.
Paintings that form part of the film include the hunt scene on the upper floor of the Kota Palace, exquisite sketches on the walls of Bhojanshala of Amber Palace and the fine murals of Nagaur Fort, representing the diverse styles of painting which developed in Rajasthan.
